Give it a Whril
Give it a Whirl by Colleen Granger (2008). I do a lot of kit quilts and this one came form a shop in Houston a couple of years ago. It had curved seams which can be a challenge. It was made using freezer paper templates. I had to make two color sections over to get it to go together in the center.
I quilted the colors with rows of zig-zag stitching. The black border is quilted in concentric circles.
I picked up these Turtles While on a Shop Hop. My Daughter in Law loves Turtles so I thought she might have fun with these. There may be as many as a dozen in the set, but these are the only ones I have found. The internet shows two more, but no one seems to actually have them. THey are from Story Quilts by Melanie Fromway CHang. I have done some of her Vegi-Cats!
